I live in Monteagle, TN. I have a BA in studio arts and an MEd in elementary education. I taught for over 20 years at various elementary grade levels. I spent most of my teaching career in Winston-Salem, NC. In following my interest in rainforests, I have traveled to most Central American countries and a few South American countries. For the past three years, I have been volunteering with the non- profit Arts Inside. This organization offers art and writing classes to incarcerated people in the Grundy County Detention Center. I served for four years on the board of the Grundy Area Arts Council. I am committed to promoting the arts in Grundy County and to helping improve the quality of life in this community.
